Biden’s Pentagon Defends Milley’s Secret Talks With China

Joe Biden’s Pentagon appeared to be defending General Mark Milley’s secret talks with China amid claims of potential treason. On Wednesday, Department Spokesman John Kirby said Milley’s talks with Beijing last October and this past January were not inappropriate.

Kirby’s comments came despite Bob Woodward revealing Milley promised Beijing he would not follow President Trump’s orders in case he authorized a military strike on China. Milley also allegedly vowed to notify China if such a decision were made by Trump.

“I’m not speaking to the validity of things that are in the book, but it is completely appropriate for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as the senior military adviser to both the secretary and the president, to want to see those protocols reviewed on whatever frequent basis that that he wants to do that,” Kirby said. “He is basically the chief of defense for the United States. We don’t call him that, but he has chief of defense counterparts around the world.”

Trump SecDef Refutes Milley's 'Regular Comms' Excuse, Calls For Immediate Resignation

While General Milley and The White House must be hoping that if they just keep pointing the finger at Trump's behavior, this whole treasonous affair will go away judging from angry comments from Christopher Miller - who was Donald Trump's acting Secretary of Defense at the time of the calls to China - this crisis is anything but over...

JustTheNews.com's Susan Katz Keating reports that the former Pentagon chief said he did not authorize Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to directly contact China's top military commander - contrary to Milley's claims that his conversations with Beijing were approved by defense officials.

Pentagon Confirms Milley Conversations with Chinese Counterpart, Other Uniformed Leaders on Nukes

A spokesman for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley on Wednesday confirmed some allegations contained in a new book that the chairman, allegedly fearing then-President Donald Trump would order a nuclear strike, had a meeting with other uniformed leaders and two phone calls with his Chinese counterpart.

Joint Staff Spokesperson Col. Dave Butler said in a statement (emphasis added):

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world, including with China and Russia. These conversations remain vital to improving mutual understanding of U.S. national security interests, reducing tensions, providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict.

Trump SLAMS 'Traitor Miley'

Former President Donald Trump suggested Gen. Mark Milley may have committed treason with secret calls to China at the end of his administration.

The ex-commander in chief called into Newsmax on Tuesday to respond to a new book that claimed Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pledged to give his Chinese counterpart advance notice if Trump were to order a strike against China.

"If it is actually true — which is hard to believe that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them of an attack or in advance of an attack — that's treason," he told Sean Spicer and Lyndsay Keith.

New Jersey Moves to Divest From Ben & Jerry’s Parent Company Over Israeli Settlement Ban

New Jersey is set to divest pension funds from the parent company of Ben & Jerry’s over the Vermont-based ice cream company’s decision to stop selling its product in illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

There are currently over 30 US states with laws against the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that calls for international boycotts to put pressure on Israel over its war crimes against the Palestinians. The law prohibits the states from doing business with individuals or companies that boycott Israel.

New Jersey’s Division of Investment said Tuesday that it made a preliminary determination that keeping investments in Unilever, of which Ben & Jerry’s is a subsidiary, violates its anti-BDS laws. The state gave Unilever 90 days to convince Ben & Jerry’s to change the move.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess things are great in New Jersey if the government has nothing better to do than worry about Israel!

The Federal Government Just Can’t Get Enough of Your Face

By Chao Liu

There are more federal facial recognition technology (FRT) systems than there are federal agencies using them, according to the U.S. General Accounting Office. Its latest report on current and planned use of FRT by federal agencies reveals that, among the 24 agencies surveyed, there are 27 federal FRT systems. Just three agencies—the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, and Justice—use 18 of these systems for, as they put it, domestic law enforcement and national security purposes.

Does The Biden Administration’s Assault On The Second Amendment Amount To Treason?

Under Biden’s reign, Americans are quickly losing their fundamental rights and liberties. -- They have already lost any vestige of a fundamental right of privacy as protected under the Unreasonable Searches and Seizures clause of the Fourth Amendment. And the Right of free speech under the First Amendment is, as well, under tremendous assault today.

How States And Communities Can Fight Back Against Biden’s Covid Tyranny

Joe, let me clarify this in the simplest terms possible so that you can grasp it – You are not important. You are not a lawmaker and you are not a ruler, you are an employee of the American people, that is all your are supposed to be. And though you may wish to be a dictator, that’s not going to happen. We will not allow it. I realize that you are a puppet and that your globalist handlers make most of your decisions and write most of your statements for you, so you can pass this message on to them as well: WE WILL NOT COMPLY. It’s not going to happen. Get used to the idea.

US media are also now abuzz with a new book from Bob Woodward --which everyone will tweet and nobody will actually read-- claiming Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Milley held secret meetings and discussions with top military leaders and his Chinese counterpart to protect against a nuclear weapons launch from a “rogue” President Donald Trump. The sense of institutional decay in the global hegemon here is palpable.

Secretary Blinken: ‘I Have Not’ Submitted Resignation over Deadly Afghan Evacuation 

Secretary of State Antony Blinken acknowledged Tuesday he has not submitted a resignation over the deadly Afghan evacuation that left 13 troops dead and billions of dollars worth of U.S. gear in the hands of the Taliban.

During the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee Hearing, Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) asked Blinken directly if he had given his resignation to President Joe Biden due to having “heard rumors regarding potential cabinet resignations.”

New book tracks Hunter Biden's three laptops amid crack binges and flings with prostitutes

A new book tracks three laptops owned by President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and their various chains of custody amid the younger Biden's benders and dalliances with prostitutes.

Fox News has obtained an exclusive excerpt from POLITICO national political correspondent Ben Schrekinger's new book, "The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power."

The excerpt from Chapter 1, "Czechov’s Laptop," details how the younger Biden's trio of laptops ended up in Delaware, and how the one left for "data recovery" at John Paul Mac Isaac’s computer repair shop in the state stirred international controversy.

Poll: Three-Quarters of Americans Think Big Tech Avoids Regulation by Influencing D.C.

Three-quarters of Americans believe that big tech companies avoid regulation by having too much influence in Washington, DC, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Americans across the political spectrum, or 75 percent, overwhelmingly believe that big tech companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google spend “tens of millions of dollars on political donations and lobbying” to avoid government regulation. They also believe that big tech companies have too much influence in D.C.

The survey also found that 69 percent of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents believe that these big tech companies have too much power, which puts smaller businesses and consumers at a disadvantage.

Likely voters across all parties also believe that big tech companies such as Amazon are known to purchase smaller companies to prevent competition from smaller companies and allow big tech to unfairly increase consumer prices for goods and services.

Rand Paul Calls For Gen Milley To Be Court-Martialed For Committing Treason Against America

Senator Rand Paul has demanded that Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley be court-martialed immediately for treason against the United States.

“I don’t care what you think of President Trump, the Chairman of the JCOS working to subvert the military chain of command and collude with China is exactly what we do not accept from military leaders in our country. He should be court martialed if true,” Sen. Paul wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

“Couple that with his inept handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and it is clear General Milley is no longer fit to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and should be removed immediately.”

California Recall Ballots: See-Through Ballot Envelopes – Weak Cellphone Flashlight Through The Back Of The Envelope SHOWS VOTE

The Gateway Pundit reported that the California recall election is today and the Democrats are cheating six ways to Sunday.

It was reported that California Republicans were having issues at the polling booths. Many were even told they had already voted even though they had not.

Similar issues were discovered in the Maricopa County canvass, which found that ballots were cast for voters that did not vote (ghost votes), and many ballots were just not counted (lost votes).

Everything King Midas Touched Turned to Gold, But Everything Democrats Touch Turns to Excrement

The Democrats in the latter half of the 20th and early 21st centuries transitioned from a reform party into America’s worst enemy. Essentially, the Democrats destroyed America. They replaced the white population with Third World “people of color” who have different values and different cultures. Assimilation was halted. To assimilate immigrants was declared to be racist, cultural supremacy, and hostility to “multiculturalism,” which somehow became an overriding value. It became more important to be a Tower of Babel than to be a united Nation.

It was the Democrats who imposed disunity on America. It was the Democrats who changed the immigration laws and overran a white population with people of color living off of handouts imposed on the white population.

It was the Democrats who invented Identity Politics and who institutionalized in the educational system Critical Race Theory and Systemic Racism that demonize white Americans.

Blinken Scolded For Not Showing Up To His Testimony

Secretary of State Antony Blinken was slammed by a Republican congressman for testifying virtually on the Biden administration's turbulent withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

Rep. Scott Perry, a Pennsylvania Republican, chastised Blinken as he testified via video call from the State Department building on Monday, blocks from where the physical hearing took place on Capitol Hill in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"Mr. Blinken , assuming it isn’t classified, can you tell us where you are today?" Perry said.

Raging for the Machine: AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ dress isn’t a scandal. It’s business as usual for Revolution, Inc.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Tax the Rich’ dress at the $30,000-per-ticket Met Gala was hypocritical and smacked of decadence. But those complaining are missing the point. She’s not a politician. She’s an actress who passes laws.

It’s difficult to think of an image that more aptly sums up the feckless arrogance and moral decline of America’s ruling class than self-professed ‘democratic socialist’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showing up to the $30,000-per-ticket Met Gala in a ball gown emblazoned with the text ‘Tax the Rich’.

Yet that’s exactly what happened on Monday night, as AOC schmoozed with celebrities at possibly the most elitist event in New York’s social calendar.

F**k Joe Biden? Looks like US voters may do just that come next year’s midterms

Less than a year in power, Biden’s approval ratings are dropping like a rock amid controversial moves from his administration, including a compulsory vaccine mandate. This is paving the way for a major Republican resurgence.

Just below the high-fructose, Cheez Whiz surface of American society, there are warning signs that a mighty giant – a sluggish, overweight giant, but a giant nonetheless – is struggling to awaken from a media-induced slumber. And the rumblings are registering in some unexpected places.

Since the days of the Roman Empire, rulers have appreciated the need for bread and circuses as a means for keeping the hearts and minds of their subjects distracted, with gladiatorial matches mixed up with a generous amount of blood and beverage. And considering that there is no bigger circus in US society than American football, the Democrats may have some cause for concern.

"Several Senior Executives" From Chinese Banks Investigated And Arrested In Recent Weeks, Global Times Reports

That's because this week, the state-owned mouthpiece Global Times made the announcement that "several senior executives of Chinese banks" had been "put under investigation or arrested over recent weeks".

According to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the regulatory scrutiny comes as China looks to fight against corruption in the financial sector.

Outrage over George W. Bush 9/11 Speech Attacking American ‘Extremists’ — ‘Americans Are the New Terrorists’

Many media and political figures expressed outrage online after former President George W. Bush appeared to use his speech commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to compare January 6 Capitol protesters to the Islamic terrorists who viciously attacked America, killing nearly three thousands innocents and wounding more than double that number.

Speaking at the 9/11 memorial service for Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, Bush recalled the September 11 attacks while warning of future terrorist threats to the United States.

“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” he said.

Alluding to American citizens who stormed Capitol Hill to protest the 2020 election, the former president stated:

Newsom soundly defeats California recall attempt

California Gov. Gavin Newsom survived a historic recall election Tuesday, winning a major vote of confidence during a COVID-19 pandemic that has shattered families and livelihoods and tested his ability to lead the state through the largest worldwide health crisis in modern times.

The recall offered Republicans their best chance in more than a decade to take the helm of the largest state in the union. But the effort was undercut when Newsom and the nation’s leading Democrats, aided by visits to California by President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, portrayed the campaign to oust the governor as a “life and death” battle against “Trumpism” and far-right anti-vaccine activists.

DOJ Seeks Emergency Court Order Blocking Texas Anti-Abortion Law

The U.S. Justice Department asked for an emergency court order to block a restrictive anti-abortion law in Texas, the first of what is likely to be an extended legal battle that reaches all the way to the Supreme Court.

The 47-page request, filed in federal court in Austin late Tuesday, seeks a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction halting enforcement of the law, known as Texas Senate Bill 8, which bars almost all abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant.

The law deputizes citizens to sue people who perform or aid in the procedure, allowing them to collect at least $10,000 and legal fees if they succeed in court. By leaving it to individuals to enforce the law, Texas government officials sought to avoid lawsuits directed at them.

Report: Mark Milley Told Military Officials Not to Take Orders After Capitol Riot

Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley single-handedly took top-secret action to preempt then-President Donald Trump from ordering a military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to a new book.

According to Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley was worried that after the January 6 Capitol breach, Trump could “go rogue” and called a secret meeting on January 8 with senior military leaders.

During that meeting, Milley instructed senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center to not take orders from anyone unless he was involved, according to a write-up of the book by CNN.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley told them.

“Milley considered it an oath,” Woodward and Costa wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Milley forgets that no President can launch a first strike of nuclear weapons all by themselves because of the two-man rule.

Newsom: Republicans Are Trying to ‘Dismantle Democracy’

Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the Republicans were trying to “dismantle democracy” with claims of election fraud.

In a live shot after a campaign stop, reporter Jacob Soboroff asked, “I spoke to Larry Elder yesterday, and he refused to commit to accepting the results of the election. I’m curious if you heard what he had to say. What do you make of that?”

Newsom said, “I’ll take my mask off on that one. Just think about what you just said to me. Donald Trump putting out something for the second time. What that message sends to the United States people all across this country is that the vote doesn’t matter, that the whole thing is rigged. They are quite literally trying to dismantle democracy and trust in this country in our very nation. This is fundamental. This is serious stuff. I hope people are paying attention to this.”
